Dorrington Architects and Associates have been tasked to style the Rutherford Property located in Oruatua, NZ especially in Taupo Tauranga. This dream property was developed following the idea of a modern day vacation property designed particularly to endure each cold winters and hot summers.
The resulting creation became an elegantly made modern day home that fits completely within its all-natural atmosphere. The implemented house floor plans have been open and offered with huge windows so that it blurs the distinction in between the interiors and exteriors. For me, this modern architecture has artfully detailed style and layout that exudes elegance and sophistication.
The interior design and style is a mixture of different components including fine organic grain stairs, elevated decks and floors, oak cabinets and flooring that complements the park-like views of the exteriors. The cozy fireplace is surrounded by sunken living room.
What I uncover exceptional about this style is its sustainable attributes such as – thermal mass provided by bagged block walls and polished concrete floors, passive ventilation mostly on the developing faces and heating interiorly and exteriorly by means of open fires. In truth, this property has been awarded with the NZIA 2009 Residential Architecture Award. (Through)
